Trout fishing is fast and furious in Louisiana. Learn how to tie a Double Rig and throw gasoline on the flames next time the trout are eating up!
I’ve already described why Double Rigs are so useful. They have these advantages:
However, I never really went over how to tie a double rig. It’s an elementary part of your fishing eduction. Every inshore angler should know how to tie a double rig!
Create a bight in the leader line. A bight is like a bend. Ensure that one length of the leader line is longer than the other.
You don’t want them to be the same length, the jigheads may tangle on each other.
Use the bight in the line to tie a Figure Eight Knot.
Tie your jigheads onto each end of the leader line. I use an Angler’s Knot (aka Improved Clinch Knot) for this.
Tie your casting line onto the loop of the Figure Eight Knot and put on your soft plastic lures.
For this picture I am using Matrix Shad in Lemon Head and Avocado.
